In this cult surf film, Andrew McAlpine gets in the Chevy, chucks the longboard on the roof and follows a group of pioneering riders (Wayne Parkes et al) on a mission around New Zealand and Australian coastlines, from Piha to Noosa. Filmed from 1965 - 1967, the Kiwi Endless Summer evokes a laid-back era (there’s no branded surfwear to be seen), where the ride is the prize. The classic surfing scenes — some filmed from an onboard camera housed in a DIY perspex case — are scored to surf rock and interspersed with sunburnt, bikini-clad relics of 60s beach culture.

If you were a surfer in 1968 this video is a must have [...] never have a carload of surfers been more fun to hang with [...] a classic.
